There's no way to get a NF to cock with three springs in it. Because they're all the same diameter, they compress on each other, making their total compressed length three times as long as a single spring. I couldn't fit two NF springs in.

I'm calling bullshit. The way to add springs is to layer them, so they're all on different circumferences around the plunger rod.


This is correct. The total compressed length of 3 springs is too long, so the NF won't be able to catch.

You'd need the plunger rod to have enough space from the catch to the head to fit all those springs. Agree'd.

No it's not, fucking moron. Learn to read before you go spouting your mouth. The PHYSICAL LENGTHS of THREE COMPRESSED SPRINGS would not catch unless you made a second notch in the plunger rod much farther back. Because you didn't say anything about making a new catch slot, I'm calling bullshit on you.

Seriously, what's the fucking point of lying on an internet forum about ranges of a gun that's done to death?
